It’s Thursday and time for another Book Traveling Thursday. This weekly meme was created by Cátia @ The Girl Who Read Too Much and Danielle @ Danielle’s Book Blog. Visit their Goodreads group to learn more about Book Traveling Thursday 🙂
The rules are to share covers related to the weekly theme where you include the original cover, the cover from your country, your favorite, and your least favorite. I’ve decided to go for a top 3 and bottom 3 arrangement, because that’s more fun and I get to showcase more covers.
This week’s theme is “Father’s Day is celebrated in a couple of days in a few countries! Choose a book with a awesome father figure.” Father’s day is in November in my country, but oh well! I had a lot of trouble coming up with a book for this one. I’ve already done Harry Potter (Mr Weasley/Sirius), Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Brimstone) and The Knife of Never Letting Go (Ben). So what’s left??? I can barely remember any other father figures LOL.
So I choose you, Ned Stark! (A Game of Thrones) Love me some Ned Stark.
This seems to be the first edition from 1996, but correct me if I’m wrong. Bad font/color but I like the drawing of the iron throne.
COVER FROM NORWAY
Complete book 1, book 1 part 1, book 1 part 2.
This must be a very old version. Never seen it before. I don’t hate it, I like the color scheme.
TOP 3 FAVORITE COVERS
I bet there are way more covers out there, but I only looked through the ones on goodreads, because I have a life LOL. I prefer the simpler ones, and these were some of my favorites. I also really like this German one and this Spanish one.
BOTTOM 3 COVERS
I’m really not a fan of the typical fantasy covers, you know the old-style ones with drawings of hunky dudes and wolves and knights and what not. Nope, not for me, they’re so tacky. And both of these older English covers (I think the first one is by Harper Collins) are awful. The Romanian one uses an illustration that other covers have used too, but I really don’t like the fonts or the composition.
So, what do you think of these covers? Which one’s your favorite and least favorite? Do you like the sort of typical fantasy illustrations?
